Relocating & Reopening

We want to let you know that we will be closed through Sunday, April 7, and we will be reopening around the corner at 133 High St. It is in the same building as we are in now, but the new shop is on street level; it is the last storefront before the Co-op. (It was the old home of the toy store, Out on a Whimsey, before they moved to the corner.)

We plan to reopen on Monday, April 9, as a work in progress; however, we may still need another day or two. Because we give our customers free help with their projects, we also consider ourselves a service business. Coupled with the fact that our customers may have a needle or hook emergency, we want to open our shop as soon as possible! Please call ahead if you are traveling from a distance to be sure we are open. Find us on Facebook, where we will keep you updated as well.

Things may be a little crazy for a few weeks, but we plan to do a grand reopening sometime in late May or June. We will keep you posted. Also, as of April 1, we will have dropped the "Socks" from our name and from then on will be Heavenly Yarns. Please know that we will continue to stock yarn that it is of good value -- whether it is a $2.25 skein of kitchen cotton or a $45.00 skein of cashmere -- and everything in between!

We will probably use the old sign until the sign maker has time to make us a new sign. We will eventually have signage on our windows too. Thank you again for your support. Please feel free to give us your input because we value the feedback of our customers.

40% Yarn Clearance

To lighten our load to move, we are clearancing lots of yarn at 40% off the suggested retail price. Below we have listed some of the yarns that we have plenty of for a large project -- but we have lots more on sale at 40% off that are not listed. Grab your needles ... it's a while still until you can plant your garden!

Here is the yarn list. If you need pattern ideas, take some time to check out Ravelry, as well as your books and magazines, and make a plan for your next project (or add to your stash!).

HEAL documentary

HEAL documentary

HEAL Documentary

On March 11, 2-4 pm at the Crosby Center, Coyote Moon is excited to offer a free screening of the documentary HEAL, with discussion to follow. It is an opportunity to come together to explore the power we hold to impact our own health. Additional support for the event is provided by the Crosby Center.

Director Kelly Noonan Gores' documentary takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe.

To view the trailer and learn more about the movie, find them on Facebook.

Replica Bateau Adventure

The Come Boating! Winter Adventure Series continues at the Belfast Free Library on Tuesday, March 20, 6:30 pm, with Camden author W. Hodding Carter giving a presentation about his recent voyage in a replica 18th-century bateau retracing Benedict Arnold's 1775 expedition to sack Quebec City for the Continental Army.

On Sept 26, 2017, a group of experiential historians, led by Carter, set off from Pittston, Maine to retrace Arnold's expedition. They built a replica 18th-century pine-planked bateau and covered a grueling 350 miles upriver, over land and then downstream to reach Quebec City on November 4. For this talk, Carter, a Camden-area award-winning author, will give a multi-media presentation about the adventure.

Come Boating! Belfast's Community Boating Organization and the Belfast Free Library are cosponsoring this event, which is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the Library's Events Calendar.

Our Shipping Policy

Even though our Web site is not designed with a shopping cart, we will happily ship anything to you.

At this time, we only ask for the exact cost of the shipping; there is no handling charge.

By the way, the man in the photo is our well-loved UPS deliveryman. He is always smiling and happy, even when hauling heavy boxes down the stairs. (He must be a secret wannabe knitter.)
